Sean "Diddy" Combs announced on his Twitter that he's been cast as a series regular on the British hit-drama Downton Abbey, writing "MY BIG NEWS: So happy to announce that Im a series regular on DOWNTON ABBEY-my favorite show+i'll be debuting a sneak peek tonight 12am PST!"
The show has been mixing up the cast lately, adding Gary Carr as the show's first black character earlier this year, but Diddy being added to the cast would be unusual, as the majority of the cast are British actors, including Carr. So far there's been no news on who Diddy will play, or any news from creator, Julian Fellowes, on the casting. So far the show's offical Twitter has almost been silent.
In spite of huge ratings and positive viewer response to new judges Shakira and Usher, NBC plans to bring back Christina Aguilera and Cee-Lo Green for Season 5 of The Voice. The two original judges both took a season off to focus on other projects.

The Season 4 premiere ratings went up by 11 percent with the introduction of Shakira and Usher.
Aguilera will reportedly be paid $12 million for returning to the show, $2 million more than her paycheck for Season 3. Although Green has yet to sign on for Season 5, he's reportedly in negotiations with the network to come back with Aguilera.

After a lack luster season from its New York counterparts, Stevie J and the rest of the Love and Hip Hop Atlanta cast return for Season 2 of the VH1 series. Picking up right where it left off, tangled in a web of love, sex, lies, and misplaced aggression, all 11 original cast members treated their audience to a night of pure entertainment.
From the continued love triangle between Stevie J, Mimi Faust and Joseline Hernandez, which looks to be materializing into a Marvel Comic-esque battle of good versus evil, Mommy Maid versus The Prostitute, to Momma Dee's deluded depiction of her son, Lil Scrappy as Atlanta’s Prince William while sipping red wine through a straw. Her extreme exhibition of undeniable tactlessness delivers a ratchet rawness uncommon to reality television.
